Owens says ‘The Edge’ will help SS athletes


To get an edge you have to do “The Edge.”

That’s the belief of Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens.

Owens will be just one of several coaches involved in “The Edge” a two-hour conditioning program for male and female high school athletes which will be held four days-a-week for six weeks.

State UIL track notes

AUSTIN  (AP) — Diplomas, not medals, were the prize for dozens of the best track and field athletes in Texas at the finish line Friday.

Swine flu scares last month pushed the University Interscholastic League’s state track and field championships back three weeks from its usual May spot, putting this year’s event squarely in conflict with high school graduation ceremonies across Texas.
